2. The Wrong Trousers Phenomena

It's easy to miscalculate the weight of your clothing. Believe it or not, scientists have actually spent time studying the phenomena of the "wrong trousers".

How did researchers discover this? By weighing people clothed and in the buff at different times of the year. Do remember to take off your hiking boots before climbing on your scales!
